I realize I didn't stay away very well, Three movies.

I'm not exactly happy now but I'll stop the non-posting thing and see if I get back into the swing of things (or if maybe I'll just dial down to once a day or something - no point in posting stuff that's just boring to most of the world). The urge to burst into tears mostly faded after Wednesday, but I still feel like a big beast is sitting on my chest sucking the happiness out of my pores. I'm also still not over my cold and I'm going to the doctor on Tuesday to see if she can make it go away. It's cool to think that I might be dying of consumption, because then I can lounge around in white gowns and spend a lot of time on the couch, but I'm suspecting something more pedestrian like pneumonia or tuberculosis (hah hah, or rather, I sure hope not). At any rate, it's ridiculous that I cough like I smoke a pack of day and I'm ready for it to be over.

The weekend in short: I saw three movies, one after another, three afternoons in a row. Friday was work time, work dime for the Simpsons movie (fun and a good night out), Saturday was Tales of Earthsea with wechsler (the new Ghibli movie, totally worth the crappy seats we had off to the side, and GORGEOUS), today was Yearning with mabel_morgan (hurray for coming out with me!), last in the NFT's Naruse series and a very worthy trip to Southbank. This weekend I wouldn't have even left my flat if I hadn't been seeing movies, so it was good to have that motivation forcing me out the door no matter how much my mood said, "Lay on the couch and stare at the ceiling." I liked the Earthsea movie the most, no surprise, and have fantasies of buying the box set with the "picture books," whatever they may be.

I also saw a great musical this week, The Drowsy Chaperone, which is unfortunately closing next weekend. Try to see it before it closes if you like musical.

Final note: my brother is coming to visit, yay! I did break in Cartagena and have now paid it about three times in less than 24 hours - and I'm going to go play it again now. Thanks!
